Making my homemade bratwurst sausage in my very humble amateur kitchen is one of my obsession. Eversince i start making Lap Cheoung Air Dry Cured Chinese Sausage, i was curious about homemade fresh sausage. Store brought bratwurst sausage  may contain tons of preservatives, color dying agent, and msg (monosodium glutamat) or other flavour enhanced agents. The ratio beetween the emat and filler content is incredibly low, trust mea you won’t eat it if you know what it made of.  I didn’t added any msg on my homemade bratwurst, instead i’m using palm sugar to enhance umami balance flavour with the salt, simply magic as what happen to salted caramel.

Before making your homemade bratwurst or other fresh sausage, you should know about the savety about handling the ingredients first. All the utensil must be clean and the meat ingredients must be kept cold (about 4°C) to ensure the meat in the prime condition. Improper prepared  fresh bratwurst sausage can be derived to botulism, a serious, potentially fatal and lethaly disease. Botulism is an intoxication usually caused by ingestion of potent neurotoxins in contaminated foods. You should know first that the neurotoxin excrete by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. The  neurotoxin  destroyed by heating  more than 85°C (185 °F) for more than 5 minutes, but the bacteria spores that are heat-resistant. The bacteria usually in a spores (inactive form) and usually germinate, grow and then excrete toxins in the low or absence of oxygen. So in my opinion the additional of nitrate (pink salt, salpetre etc) is absolutely  important because it’s an effective agent agains Clostridium botulinum.  Maybe you heard that nitrate are toxic, infact nitrosamines did. Nitrosamine formed when nitrate transform into nitrite then react with amino acids or very high heat. Nitrosamines are known to be powerful DNA damaging chemicals and resulting cell mutation and cancer. But don’t really bother about it, infact a single portion of spinach or celery contain more nitrosamines than you can imagine. So, did salpetre or curing salt it essensial for making fresh bratwurst ? it’s a tricky question, If you made a small quantity like mine and cooked it directly in a fresh state without any further dry aging process i guess it’s not really essensial.

  1. Very thorough information on the reasoning behind the use of nitrites. I try to buy nitrite free meats whenever I can. Maybe I’m putting our health at risk! Another extraordinary creation Dedy!

    Sent from my iPad


  2. I admire your level of expertise with making sausages.
    You’re so right about nitrites – people don’t realize they are a natural substance and it’s all about how much you use.
    Same goes for MSG by then way, which is naturally found in mushrooms, tomatoes and more…

  3. Lovely Dedi. Beautiful looking sausage. The only thing that makes me nervous is the device you used to burst the air bubbles. It looks very like dental equipment to me! Dentist Chef indeed.

    • Lol, you just bust me out Conor….
      i use my unused preclinic straight dental explorer which never been touched eversince i left my undergraduate preclinical dental laboratorium,
      definitely handy for kitchen tools too, instead off thrown away because it’s not suitable for clinical purpose/patients

  4. Your sausages look so good!! 🙂 I’ve tried making sausages before, with a funnel like you but I had such a hard time getting it into the skin! The sauce sounds amazing too!

  5. Finally we get to see a little bit of your dentistry here with a little pick from a dentistry tool. I have always wanted to make homemade sausages but you are far braver than I am to do all of these steps. Lots of work but a beautiful dish and love that balsamic glaze.

  6. Bottom line; you can make all those loveable dishes which I can’t stop drooling. For me, its so exotic yet, I will not say no too.

  7. I rarely am lucky enough to have homemade sausage, but it always tastes so wonderful compared to professionally made. I’m sure yours is fantastic, especially simmered in vinegar.

  8. I’ve only made homemade chorizo, but that has made me want to make more and more sausages at home. So I thank you so much for this recipe! Your bratwurst is amazing! The herbs and spices are quite interesting with the herbs combination and then the garam masala. I wouldn’t have thought. Now I need to try this.
